First Harvest

I always get excited at the first little harvest from our backyard garden. This was tonight. We have actually eaten a LOT of lettuce in the past month, and I have given away bags of it, too.
But this is what I picked this evening:


We ate our one zuchinni on Sunday, so this one is really from another garden. But we did have one. It was good. It may be our only one. The pumpkins are kind of taking over.

We have about 4 or 5 ORANGE pumpkins that are not too shabby in size. I'm not quite sure what to do with orange pumpkins so early in the season. I only like them for fall decorating. Oh, I guess we could eat them, but where's the fun in that?! Pumpkins are FUN food. ;-)

I have lots more beans and peas coming, and tomatoes and onions and cucumbers. The carrots and beets are sparse, and the radishes and lettuce are on their way out. The apple tree is looking great.

Ah, summer time. Sometimes it's really nice. . . especially when someone else does the weeding. Thanks, Mike!!

Your green beans look so yummy! Next year I'm going to plant some. I tried one year and killed them. :( Your gardens sounds amazing!
